A four story brick and stucco hospital. There is a central bank of elevator shafts with the elevators missing. Three banks of stairs, one at each end of the building, and one near the center. It sits on top of a hill near the center of town. The building is totally trashed, with not one window remaining, and graf on every wall.

    The hospital was built in the mid 1950's as the areas only real hospital. It provided care for the residents of three counties as the Gila region grew. By the early 1980's it was obvious that a new and more modern hospital was necessary, especially since the dangers of asbestos in the old hospital were becoming very apparent. Upon the dedication of the new Gila Regional Medical Center in 1983, Hillcrest closed its doors forever. Torn down Mar - June 2009 (I believe).

     Future Plans
    The city is applying for a $342,000 grant from the state to begin asbestos abatement, in preparation for demolition. I have not been able to find any information on what the city might use the land for after demo.

    EDIT: Aug 2009 Gone. Demoed and now an empty lot.
